Igor Badamshin ‘Wax Museum’ Project

IMG_1398.jpg

By: Casey Van Hefty, U12 Skier from Lakeland Nordic Ski Club

On June 12, 1966 in Sverdlovsk, Russia, a very intelligent boy, Igor Badamshin was born. Igor had a very successful, but short life. Spending most of his time in Russia he also made his way to the U.S. and Wisconsin. In his life he coached for many teams and was a legacy with all of them. He developed a relationship with the Central Cross Country Ski Association and was a huge part of the program.

IMG_1378.jpg

Igor Gayniakhmetovich Badamshin was born and grew up in Sverdlovsk, Russia. His name in Russian is actually written as Игорь Гайниахметович Бадамшин. His father’s name was Gainiahment Badamshin and in my research I could not find his mother’s name. He also had a twin brother, and younger sister. Most of his family is still known to live in St. Petersburg, Russia. Igor began skiing at an age of 13. Before that he was really into basketball. He skied with his family at first, but then at 14 years old skiing became more competitive for him.

As a young man Igor became a very well known, world class cross country skier in
Russia, and was known mostly for his long distance skiing. Several of his achievements included a podium position of second place in the 50km classic at the Calgary World Cup event in 1989. He was a member of the Russian 4 x 10 relay team that took the bronze medal in the 1993 World Ski Championship in Falun, Sweden, where he also took 5th place for his 30kim individual classic race. Before that he also placed 5th in the 1989 World Championship race in Lahti, Finland for the 50km individual freestyle race.

IMG_1385.jpg

While in Russia he also won the Soviet 50 km title in 1988, 50 km, 70 km and relay titles in 1989, a 15 km title in 1990, and CIS 50 km title in 1992. And most impressively, he placed 14th for the Men’s 50k in the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. During this time, while living in Russia , and being very involved in his ski career, is when he met and married Nina Gavrylyuk. Nina was a three-time Olympic gold medal winner herself, and actually took home more medals and higher rankings than Igor. Also while they were living there their daughter Jenia was born. It was documented that he retired from being a professional skier in 1997, but he never stopped skiing.

IMG_1384.jpg

In 2003 he was asked by a wealthy family to move to Gunstock, New Hampshire to privately coach their daughter. He made his decision to move to the United States for this position and moved with his wife and daughter when she was in 8th grade. Eventually Nina and Igor began coaching a team in this area and they began to quickly rack up top finishes in races.

Many of the athletes they coached went to Junior National Championships and college races. At first it was difficult to coach because of the language barrier but it became easier after awhile. Nina would always take on the serious role and Igor would always make sure everybody got enough games and fun in for the practice. During this time the new Central Cross Country Ski Association (CXC) that was developing in the Midwest caught his attention. He made the decision to move to Wausau, Wisconsin in 2007 where he became the head coach for Knicker Nordic. His wife and daughter decided to stay back in Gunstock.

IMG_1382.jpg

As time went on he became very involved in the CXC program first volunteering and then becoming a high performance advisor. He also developed and became a coach for the CXC junior development program, and elite team. He even held a development camp right here in Minocqua with his friend Coach Jim Mullen who said he was known to have an incredible amount of energy with children of all ages, and never made practices seem like work. A close friend of Igor’s, Bill Pierce, said when working with kids, you could often hear Igor say “keep moving, moving, moving…and have fun too!”

On Friday January 24, 2014 Igor Badamshin, age 47, was in Seeley Wisconsin, spending time on one of his favorite cross country ski trails. He was training alone on the Birkie trail for an upcoming local race, when he died unexpectedly of a heart attack, while doing something he loved. The news spread quickly among the cross country ski community, and special gatherings were held in many communities that Igor touched, in honor of celebrating his life.

Almost immediately, close friends of Igor’s created a cross country ski event to honor their friend, and named it the Igor Legacy Camp. The camp was a summer ski camp for young athletes, and the first one was held in June 2014 at Iola Winter Sports Club. Kids from all over met to work on movement, balance, meet new friends and most important, to have fun. The camps have continued and this summer there are four different camps planned to honor Igor. I had the chance to go to one last summer, and that is where I learned about Igor and what he did for cross country skiing.

IMG_1381

In Igor’s lifetime he coached many children of all ages to inspire them to do their best. He coached them through tough levels of training and travelled with them to races across the country. He always had a good attitude and a smile on his face. He never got discouraged or talked about how good he was at skiing and about his medals he won.

I got the chance to talk to some of Igor’s closest friends. Bruce Manske said this about Igor, “By sharing his happiness and joy of Nordic skiing and LIFE, Igor made a huge impact on a lot of kids during his short life.” His friend Bill Pierce said, “Igor was a great coach, trainer, and skier, but he will be remembered most for his love for playing outside.” And his good friend Dennis Kruse shared a story with me and said “ I said to Igor one time when I was thinking about the medals Igor had won, and how good of racers he had competed against, “Igor you were really good back in the Olympics.” Igor just smiled and said “Yeah, I guess I was a little strong.” Some of Igor’s best friends didn’t even know about the medals he had won and how good of a skier he was, that is the kind of person he was and why he will always be remembered.

For The Love of Skiing

A History of the Igor Legacy Camps

Not only did Igor Badamshin love skiing, he had a gift for coaching young athletes and teaching them the joys of being outside. From his disciplined and structured background as a professional Nordic ski racer on the Russian National Team, Igor developed a passion for teaching others about ski technique and the pure simple fun of being active outdoors.

According to Bill Pierce, “Igor loved to get kids moving; and if they became proficient skiers, well then, all the better. His goal was not to be a great trainer and skier, it was about developing a love for being outside. You could often hear Igor’s Russian accent echo down the trail, keep moving, moving, moving…and have fun too.”

Igor died suddenly at the age of 47, while doing what he loved most; skiing on the Birkie Trail, near Seeley, WI. As a result of his untimely death, coaches and friends, including Jim Mullen, Steve Myrland, Yuriy Gusev, Bill Pierce, and Jake Barnes, along with the Wisconsin Nordic Development Group (WNDG) and Central Cross Country Skiing (CXC) pulled together an event and to honor their lost colleague: the Igor Legacy Camp, a ski camp for young athletes.

The first CXC Igor Legacy Camp took place in June 2014 at the Iola Winter Sports Club (IWSC). The camp format was designed to engage young athletes relatively new to Nordic skiing,  The weekend featured summer training activities, including roller skiing and technique, running, soccer, swimming, and strength training. The most important aspect of the camp is to meet new friends and have FUN! From Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon, these athletes never stopped moving, except to eat and sleep.

Over 50 athletes ages 10-14 from across the Midwest participated in the first CXC Igor Legacy Camp. Unlike other junior camps, this camp was shorter in duration and a simple introduction to ski training. At this age, it is important for athletes to focus on refining and sharpening their skill development for general athletics.  As they get older, they will begin to focus more on sport specific athletic activities.  Along with skiing activities, games and socializing, several other learning opportunities took place over the two days:  Toko representative Mike Young presented a waxing clinic, three collegiate skiers: William Frielinghaus, Seth Mares and Tom Bye shared their personal ski and education experiences. 15 parents and club coaches also attended to help make the camp run smoothly.

Due to the success of the CXC Igor Legacy Camp in 2014, plans were immediately set to continue the coaching legacy of Igor Badamshin by adding additional camps throughout the Midwest during the 2015 summer.

Jake Barnes, IWSC head coach stated, “The first Igor Legacy Camp was a success, because young skiers from across the Midwest got together to work and play in an outdoor setting and learn about Nordic skiing from each other.”

Yuriy Gusev, CXC Executive Director, suggested three Igor Legacy Camps, each in a different state for the 2015 camp schedule. The plan quickly took shape, as the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation, FinnSisu Ski Shop, OutThere Nordic, GearWest Ski Shop joined the WNDG as camp sponsors, and a 2015 camp schedule became a reality.

WISCONSIN June 19-21, 2015 Iola Winter Sports Complex
MINNESOTA July 24-26,2015 Lake Bemidji State Park
MICHIGAN  August 7-9, 2015 Wolverine Nordic Village

The goal of each Igor Legacy Camp is designed to promote the growth and development of junior cross country ski racers. Another goal includes exposing young athletes to the fundamental building blocks required for high-level cross country ski racing.

Bruce Manske, CXC Sport Development Coordinator, and Igor Legacy Camp organizer proclaimed, “The athletes were excited, energized, and pumped-up about Nordic skiing from the moment they arrived at camp, until they were packed and headed homeward.”

Manske also noted that several athletes attended more than one camp this summer. Per Hanson, an athlete from Chippewa Valley Nordic, has attended all four CXC Igor Legacy Camps. The future for youth skiing opportunities in the Midwest is exciting and impressive, and as a result the CXC Igor Legacy Camp team is already making plans for the 2016 camp schedule.

Igor Badamshin made a huge impact on many kids during his short life – he promoted the FUN in sports. His legacy continues not just at camp, but EVERYDAY!  Join the excitement and make plans to attend the CXC Igor Legacy Camps planned for next summer. The camps are specifically designed for young athletes U12 (ages 10-11) and U14 (ages 12-13) interested in the sport of cross country skiing. The camps promote fitness, wellness, meeting new friend, and having fun. Club coaches and parents interested in Nordic skiing are also encouraged to attend the camps.

Ironwood Igor Legacy Camp Wrap-Up

The Wolverine Nordic Village is a special place located near Ironwood, MI in the heart of the Upper Peninsula.  Robert Alleva, an avid skier and outdoorsman, owns the “village.”  He designed and built the complex, so that others could enjoy the fresh air and scenic surroundings of the North Country.

According to Alleva, “The Village come alive, when coaches bring young people together to learn, train, and participate in outdoor activities.”

11866309_976878902354850_5886884031156274835_n

During the weekend of August 7-9, 2015, the Wolverine Nordic Village was the host for a very successful Igor Legacy Camp. Over 25 athletes, from ten different Midwest teams, came together as one big team – the CXC Igor Legacy Team – to learn about skiing and training, to make new “ski” friends, and have fun.

“The Village quickly sprang to life! “The athletes were excited, energized, and pumped-up about Nordic skiing from the moment they arrived until they were packed and headed homeward.”  Proclaimed to CXC Coach Bruce Manske,

The Ironwood camp was the final Igor Legacy Camp of the summer; the first camp was heldhelp in Iola, Wisconsin in June and the second camp was in Bemidji, Minnesota in July.  The goals for each camp included promoting fun and fitness, learning Nordic movement patterns, and to create an enthusiasm for Nordic skiing as a life-long sport, for young (ages 9-14) athletes.

Athletes arrived at camp on Friday afternoon.  The first order of business was to assign cabins and settle into the surroundings of the Upper Peninsula.  During the camp’s opening ceremony, each athlete collected an Igor Camp T-shirt and swag, met the coaching staff, and reviewed the schedule ahead. Jim Mullen, a sports medicine physician and CXC Masters Team member briefed the group on flexibility, mobility, and the benefits of running for skiers, before staging a 1-mile time trial, an out and back course, on a rural road near the Wolverine Nordic Village.  The evening activities included a chicken dinner with watermelon, a stimulating game of Polo in the stadium of the Wolverine Nordic Ski Trail, along with an Igor Legacy presentation and ice cream cones.

11870697_975801935795880_7408610529737233460_n

A cool morning breeze, a fresh coating of dew, and the smells of fall greeted athletes during their 7:00 AM Saturday wake-up call. Coach Kris Hanson lead the crew on a 3-kilometer run to the end of Lookout Lane, followed by a balance and stretching regimen lead by Jim and Kieran Mullen. After a hearty breakfast, the morning workout included classic rollerskiing, plus a strength circuit. The rollerskiing was a truly exciting for the coaches, because it was the first time classic rollerskiing for many of these young athletes.

After lunch, Coach Bruce Manske gave a short presentation on the importance of Nordic ski training levels and training hours. The afternoon workout started with ski walking, striding, and bounding, on the hills surrounding the Village; concluding with a dryland agility challenge. Coach Kris Hanson is an expert on designing rollerski agility courses. On this course, she utilized nine of her favorite agility and balance drills to layout an obstacle type challenge for the athletes and coaches to test their speed and dexterity on roller skis.

The evening meal featured a tasty treat from the Upper Peninsula, Bread of Life pasties, and a delightful salad. Although the day was full and tiring, these young athletes still had plenty of energy for an evening outdoor game orchestrated by Jim and Kieran Mullen. The evening ended, with a presentation titled Teamwork, a teamwork poetry contest, and more ice cream treats.

Sunday morning began with an easy warm-up jog, and a stretching routine; followed by a training session focused on skate rollerskiing. Athletes were divided into four groups, and completed four stations:  V1 technique, V2 and Alternate, a free-skate stations, and the highlight of the morning, Coach Kris Hanson’s rollerski agility course.  The skate rollerski session was fun and rewarding for both the athletes and the coaches.  

During lunch, and as the skiers began to pack their gear for the trip home, a common theme was boasted by coaches and parents,

“It is inspiring to see the confidence of the skier, as they progressed through each of the rollerski agility stations.”  

Coach Bruce Manske added, “The agility courses, both dryland and rollerski, become the format for teaching movement, balance, and agility skills. It was awesome to see the improvements, made by each athlete, throughout the weekend.”
